Argentina calls for Falklands negotiations, Britain says no

Posted:

UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- Argentina's foreign minister says recovering sovereignty of the Falkland Islands remains a "permanent and unrelinquished" objective of the Argentine people and called for the dispute to be solved through negotiations between the two parties.

Britain, meanwhile, rejected any discussion over sovereignty despite a United Nations committee once again adopting a resolution calling for a negotiated solution.

Susana Malcorra told the Special Committee on Decolonization on Thursday that the concept of self-determination is not absolute and did not apply in the case of the Falklands because the current inhabitants had been placed there by Britain after they seized the islands in 1833.
